Pic. It does a local no harm to view tourist promotional videos if for
no other reason than to give us a jolt and realise just how fortunate we are to live in Aotearoa/New Zealand and not anywhere else.
John, the pic from 1964 when the Beatles were in town brings back some happy memories.
This pic was taken from behind the "Fab Four" at the St George Hotel. It's a back packers hostel now, but during the time of the Pacific War, 1941 - 1945, was the Headquarters of the United States Armed Forces in New Zealand.
Here is the St. George as it stands today.
